Moon’s phases, phases of the moon, waxing, waning, gibbous, crescent.  Complete KS3 lesson.

Moon’s phases, phases of the moon, waxing, waning, gibbous, crescent. Complete KS3 lesson.

‘The Moon’s phases’ is number 6 in a series of 6 high quality lessons that fully and expertly delivers all the points within BOTH the NEW KS3 Department for Education 'Space Physics' National Curriculum and the AQA KS3 specification / syllabus sections '3.7.2 Universe' and '3.1.2 Gravity'. ‘‘THE MOON’S PHASES’’ - STUDENT OUTCOMES: By the end of the lesson students will be able to: * Use new literacy words e.g. waxing and waning. * Draw the different phases of the Moon. * Name the phases of the moon. * Explain why we see phases of the Moon. * Successfully complete a phases of the moon practical. STARTER Pupils will start the lessons by thinking and working in pairs in a race to solve a picture puzzle and work out what today’s lesson is about. After discussion that leads to revealing the title and lesson outcomes, students then self assess against their current understanding of this lesson. MAIN and MAIN and MAIN.... This lesson is chunked into discrete sections to support learning and engender positive behaviour by keeping students interested and focused. All points of the specification are addressed. There are various student activities such as: practical, unique activity sheet, animation, carefully selected video, paired work, literacy activities, focused questions with answers and differentiation, picture puzzle, quiz, homework, gap fill, self-assessment and peer assessment opportunities etc. This good variety of activities keeps pupils focused and happily learning. PLENARY: In the plenary activity pupils complete a quiz and then peer assess it to uncover how much they have learnt during the lesson. They then self-assess themselves against the lesson outcomes. Students who need further support set themselves additional homework to enhance learning of today’s lesson. EXTENSION ACTIVITIES: These are provided just in case any group requires them. COMPLETE AND READY TO USE: All resources are included in this excellent lesson, there is nothing for you but order the equipment (list is provided), photocopy the unique activity sheet and deliver the lesson. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING: Thanks for looking, your positive feedback would be very much appreciated :) THIS IS ONE OF A SERIES OF 6 LESSONS: 1. Solar system, stars and galaxies and the universe. 2. Geocentric and heliocentric solar system models 3. Seasons. 4. Gravity, weight and mass. 5. Exploring and observing the universe. 6. The moon’s phases.
